If you had to choose...

#1 Posted by shadowjak (456 posts) -

*yawns* Well since both games come out on the same day, and the forum slew down, I decided to ask this very thoguht provoking question! D:

If you had to choose to get one of thse two games, which would it be: Fallout 3 or Gears of War 2?

If I had to choose:  Fallout 3 without another thought.

Fallout 3, if I had a 360 :p

#4 Posted by Cali_Style (63 posts) -

I thought Fallout 3 was coming out in October and Gears 2 in November. Either way, I choose both. How can I pass on either when they're both likely to be dope?

#5 Posted by MsCortana (429 posts) -

Gears of War 2 without a doubt....

#6 Posted by METALM1LITIA91 (259 posts) -

Gears 2 is going to blow people away. No contest there

#7 Posted by tec3297 (1170 posts) -

Fallout 3

#8 Posted by Conner (88 posts) -

Gears 2. Fallout 3 may be good, but I just love Gears.

GoW2; Fallout 3 has failed to impress me thus far.

#11 Posted by Feanor (1387 posts) -

I'll probably just rent Gears and beat it quicly.  So I'd go with Fallout since there will probably be a lot more gameplay.

fall out 3 for sure

#13 Posted by Grilledcheez (3943 posts) -

Gears 2 because I know it will meet my expectations

#14 Edited by shadowjak (456 posts) -

This is pretty even 0.o

I'd have to choose Falluot 3 for all the play value it offers.

I've played GOW and only seen video footage of Fallout3, i really enjoyed GOW but Fallout3 is being made by the ppl that made oblivion so i think ill go with Fallout3.

#16 Posted by Bennyishere (1685 posts) -

Fallout 3 here as well.

#17 Posted by shadowjak (456 posts) -

Fallout 3- 8
Gears of War 2- 7
Switerland Neutrality- 1.

I'm prepared to get punched in the face, but...

If Fallout 3 is not as boring and tedious as Oblivion, then I'm all for it, otherwise I'll stick with Gears 2.

*punches in face* Todd Howard shot someone with teddy bears D: You cannot do that in Oblivion, nor anything remotely like it.

I'm putting Gears of War 2 in the limelight, too. There better be one heck of a compelling story to support what looks like rarely rotating scenery.

Fallout 3, definitely. Gears was such a shallow game. It didn't draw you in at all, save the chainsaw gun. I believe Fallout3 will be as deep as Oblivion and thats all I need.

Fallout 3

#22 Posted by SlimDogg (159 posts) -

I would pick Gears Of War 2. Then probably regret it until i finally break down and go get Fallout 3.

#23 Posted by LuffyUzumaki (453 posts) -

gears of war 2

#24 Posted by DualReaver (3882 posts) -

I'm going to say Fallout 3, although I have a suspicion Fallout 3 is going to be nowhere near as good as the hype.

#25 Posted by MikPick (333 posts) -

Fallout 3. I wasn't aa big fan of the first Gears, plus all my friends will buy it anyway.

#26 Posted by Strife88 (225 posts) -

Fallout 3, I'm sure my bro would pick up GeOW2 so it works out.

#27 Posted by Kaycon11 (91 posts) -

Well...I think both are gonna be great games and I'm going to get both, but if you stuck a gun to my head and told me to choose one I would go with Fallout 3. The game just looks absolutely amazing from all the gameplay I've seen.

Gears of War 2. 100%

#29 Edited by logson (521 posts) -

I think I MAY enjoy Fallout 3 more than Gears 2, but I KNOW that Gears will be worth my money. So on day one I will grab Gears off the shelf, and since I have no spine, after a few minutes of staring at Fallout I'll grab that too.

#30 Posted by borgmaster (513 posts) -

both, at the same time

#31 Posted by LightYagami245 (1117 posts) -

Fallout 3. It looks like it has a really good story.

#32 Posted by legend_cloud (359 posts) -

I don't think I'll ever have to choose between those 2 but I'd say Fallout 3.

#33 Posted by veneer (30 posts) -

Fallout 3

#34 Posted by HoboCop (53 posts) -

Shit.  I thought this was gonna be an awesome "Which method of horrible Death would you choose" type of things...

I choose auto-erotic-asphyxiation.

#35 Posted by Batman (1016 posts) -

I couldn't pass either up, but if I was forced to choose it would be Gears 2.   Gears has earned a special place in my heart.

#36 Posted by Mr_Bauer (398 posts) -

Gears of War 2

#37 Posted by Eoco (81 posts) -

Gears 2, the multiplayer would keep me going until I could get Fallout

#38 Posted by DarkLegend (1387 posts) -

Easily Fallout 3, looks more promising. 

#39 Posted by Foxdemon2k (261 posts) -

Fallout 3

#40 Posted by cjmhockey (244 posts) -

Gears 2

#41 Posted by Wolverine (4276 posts) -

I never really played a Fallout game and I love Gears of War so I would pick Gears 2.

#42 Posted by samcotts (2258 posts) -

Gears of War 2. Fallout 3 looks great, but not anywhere near as good as Gears 2.

I'm surprised that Fallout 3 is winning, especially as I'm sure Gears will definitely outsell it, and by quite a bit.

#43 Posted by Kenzo287 (722 posts) -

going with both on this one

#44 Posted by BlindEffekt (917 posts) -

Thats a toughy, but fallout is more appealing to me right now.
